Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, sister of Bears LB Robert Quinn, wins Olympic gold in 100-meter hurdles
Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, the sister of Chicago Bears linebacker Robert Quinn, is an Olympic gold medalist.
Hours after breaking an Olympic record in the semi-finals, Camacho-Quinn scorched the competition in the women’s 100-meter hurdles finals on Sunday night, finishing with a first place finish and a time of 12.37 seconds.
Camacho-Quinn’s win inside of Tokyo’s Olympic Stadium also has the added distinction of giving Puerto Rico its second-ever Olympic gold medal.
Her historic accomplishment comes on the heels of the 24-year-old wowing spectators Sunday morning with a 12.26-second finish in the same event.
With her incredible victory now in the books, Camacho-Quinn has officially been crowned as the world’s best 100-meter hurdler, something the Bears hope her brother uses as a source of motivation in his pursuit of quarterbacks in the fall.
